Regarding to your recent Character Artworks uploads[edit]

I notice the artworks you have recently uploaded, but what you need to know is to not cut off part of a character artwork for the character's pages. Unless one existed single high resolution art file from a reliable source such as Nintendo, or video game source site (as such IGN or GameStop).

Thank you. As I am new to the wiki I was unaware of this. I will no longer make this mistake.

Forum account? (Regarding your recent uploads rel. to M&S Rio 2016)[edit]

Hey, just wondering, do you have a forum account by any chance? Because there is something that I wish to ask you about those M&S Rio 2016 arts in question that I can't post here on your talkpage. Let me know soon; thanks so much in advance for your time. --M. C. - Profile | Talk Page 10:27, 14 December 2017 (EST)

Hi, M.C. I unfortunately do not have a forum account, but I do have an email account. Is there a problem, or just an inquiry? Could you at least explain or hint at why you cannot ask me here on my talkpage? Nintendo101 (talk) 18:32, 19 December 2017 (EST)

Koopa Troopa[edit]

Sorry, I didn't see the direct, but how are you sure Koopa Troopa would be "unlockable" and not default or an NPC player? Koopa Troopa isn't a series regular, like Mario and Link are in Smash... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:38, 8 March 2018 (EST)

Hi, Doc. The citation I attributed displays what I'm talking about. During the Direct, they announced an online tournament mode for Aces. The reward for participating in these tournaments are "t-shirts" and "additional characters", and they showed silhouettes for each on screen. The character silhouette was very clearly Koopa Troopa - holding a tennis racket. You can see it at the 4:23 mark here. Let me know when you have seen this. Nintendo101 (talk) 23:52, 9 March 2018 (EST)
Hm, not sure if that's "unlockable" in the traditional sense, seems to be a combination of that and DLC due to necessitating online interaction (a crummy way to have unlocking criteria, if you ask me...) Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:56, 9 March 2018 (EST)
Huh, you have a point. I never thought of it that way! I recall some people thinking/assuming/hoping they'll be means to unlock characters off-line, such as through the story mode. But in any case, would it be more appropriate to present the info as "Koopa Troopa ("additional" character)"? Nintendo101 (talk) 00:00, 10 March 2018 (EST)


No one called you pedantic. The user simply updated the table from an older version, unawares overwriting the change you made. -- -- KOOPA CON CARNE 18:52, 11 February 2019 (EST)

Thank you for the clarification, and I apologize if I seemed accusative. I have had unfortunate experiences recently with users on a few other wikis. I guess it made me a little defensive. Nintendo101 (talk) 23:16, 11 February 2019 (EST)
No worries. -- -- KOOPA CON CARNE 22:05, 12 February 2019 (EST)

Sources for images[edit]

Make sure you check the sources for the images when you upload artwork, don't just randomly use google images and post whatever you see there. Images must be official not fanarts even if they're replicas of official artwork CastleResearch (talk) 11:28, October 4, 2020 (EDT)

Hi. I appreciate that you contacted me and I will be more careful identifying sources in the future, but I do not appreciate the implication that I locate images uncritically. I have never knowingly uploaded an image that was fanart, nor have I every casually pulled images from Google. Cheers.Nintendo101 (talk) 20:53, October 4, 2020 (EDT)

If you didn't use google images, then you would have known that it's fanart since it can be easily found here: CastleResearch (talk) 21:58, October 4, 2020 (EDT)

I located the image on a png depository site called FavPNG by chance in my attempt to locate lost official artwork from the Metroid and Star Fox series. Anyone can upload images to such a site and while some are fan creations quite a few are official images. It was seen there without any context and presumed official. This was in error. Nintendo101 (talk) 12:05, October 6, 2020 (EDT)


Hello, please don't upload models over game screenshots. Both have a place on this wiki, so they should be uploaded separately, not one over another. Scrooge200 (talk) PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png 17:39, January 13, 2021 (EST)

Sure thing. Sorry! I'll reverse my revisions. - Nintendo101 (talk) 17:43, January 13, 2021 (EST)

Remember that when you upload an image, you need to place them somewhere. Otherwise they'll float around unused. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:19, March 30, 2021 (EDT)

Mister I[edit]

Is that an actual render or just the textures artificially laid over each other? Because the latter's been deleted repeatedly for being inaccurate to their actual relative size. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 10:44, January 14, 2021 (EST)

Hello! I am not sure, but I tentatively assume "no". I did not procure the image myself. It was uploaded here on Mario's Castle by Duraner Hawkeye (which I should have specified in the image summary and will fix after this post) and I assume good faith. There was no warning about this specific image file or any similar one having previously been uploaded to Mario Wiki, so I assumed it was fine. If this is a problem, I can remove it. - Nintendo101 (talk)


Hey, I like what you've done with the character section on the Super Mario Sunshine page. Keep up the good work. --Glowsquid (talk) 13:09, January 25, 2021 (EST)

Well that's kind of you. Thank you! I will keep trying to do my best. - Nintendo101 (talk) 15:04, January 25, 2021 (EST)


  • The formatting is all nice and good. I like it.
  • Having an introductory paragraph in the enemies section describing the game,s stylistic choice and departures from the series convention is a very niche touch, and something that could be done on more pages. I love it!
  • The descriptions for the friendly NPCs could more consistently describe their gameplay presence. For example, you can mention Peach is a NPC in the hub until she's kidnapped, what the Toads do, the director's presence in the park missions. Also some repetitive wording ("state of panic").
  • Generally, I think wikipedia links should be for a minimum. They're mostly used to link to obscure real world concepts, or media not covered by the wiki. Having a wiki link to tanukis is fine, but more general and widely-understood concepts like "robots", "palm treets" or "introversion" are unnecessary and look forced.
  • Spoils and appareance boxes: good idea. --Glowsquid (talk) 19:43, February 5, 2021 (EST)
@Nintendo101: You've done such a wonderful job in the page! Maybe I can stea-I mean borrow your ideas when composing enemy tables for other game artciles. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 19:55, February 5, 2021 (EST)
It seems like the Super Mario Galaxy 2 article could use this treatment as well. Bowser Swallow Rindo Kanade 20:36, February 5, 2021 (EST)
Glowsquid, thank you so much! Your response was more specific than I expected and I appreciate it. This gives me a good idea on what to work on. I can try to integrate more of what you suggest within the next few days. It is sometimes challenging to strike a balance on what is too much detail, and what is not enough.
Ray Trace, yes! By all means. Anyone can use these templates.
Keyblade Master, I actually did start a preliminary draft for the NPC section of SMG2 on my user page. My progress on it has slowed because I am about to finish the game, and I honestly want to avoid spoiling some details for me. I haven't played Galaxy 2 since I was in grade school and I remember almost none of the late game stuff. I still like to be surprised in games. But I am almost done. - Nintendo101 (talk) 20:58, February 5, 2021 (EST)


Hey, do you need any help for the organization of the article? I can upload cropped models of the preview planetoids before you enter the level in the dome. Such as this.


(yes it's all in one spot but I can manage it) BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:57, February 16, 2021 (EST)

Hi, Ray. I appreciate the offer for help! I'm guessing you've seen this already, but I have been working on a new level chart for Galaxy on my user sandbox. I felt the current one in the article is a bit confusing and bulky. I started with the template I set up for Sunshine and worked from there. Do you feel this is an improvement? Anything you'd do differently?
Also, I start editing things on my own personal sandbox because I sometimes start projects and I'm not sure how long they'll take, but I believe there is a communal site "sandbox" that allows users to work on the same thing together. Do you know what I'm talking about? I've never used it before so I'm not fully sure how it works, but if you'd like for us to work on this together I can move the chart there.
I appreciate the offer to render and screenshot the little galaxy preview models, but that seems like a lot of work and I'm not sure it's necessary. I personally prefer screenshots because I think they're a little more honest as to how these areas look like in-game. But that's just my opinion. Do you think the little galaxy preview models would be more serviceable? Nintendo101 (talk) 13:38, February 17, 2021 (EST)
I have indeed seen the screenshots but I feel the little planetoid previews in the domes before you enter a galaxy you see in-game are also pretty valid as well, since that's the first model players come across when selecting a level (also think Super Mario 64's article could use a preview of the level via painting but then again, not all levels are accessed through paintings). But on the flipside, I guess using noclip to view the planets is more consistent as some galaxies don't have preview models, but there's also the factor that some levels dynamically change in that you can't capture it with a single screenshot such as Freezeflame Galaxy. Maybe I should upload it into some other place than the main article, when I get official names for the planetoids on the meantime.
Yes indeed I know that there exists MarioWiki:Sandbox. Personally, I don't use sandboxes myself nor the main sandbox to do page overhauls: I edit pages live, such as my ongoing work on Yoshi's New Island and how it's still in a rather incomplete state (sometimes I put a construction tag, sometimes I just don't).
As for your work on Sunshine, I think you're doing a great job! IMO, I might curb down the use of color (as what color to use to portray a level can be seen as arbitrary and I could see edits from other users down the line debating what colors to use to represent a level) and just stick with the color the respective series infobox uses (such as sticking with greens in Yoshi's New Island as it matches its navtemplate)) but that is just a personal preference of mine and you don't have to abide by it. I also think your revision is an improvement over the current one because the screenshots are indeed a bit unwieldly using full resolution than just the cropped important bits that appear smaller to the view due requiring empty space. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 00:10, February 18, 2021 (EST)
Hi, again. Yeah, the consistency issue is part of the reason why I think screenshots are a little more serviceable for the chart. But you're right - some galaxies change dramatically between missions and because some galaxies consist of many planets, one cannot really capture all the places one can go in a single image. I'm just not sure that issue is resolved with using the galaxy preview models in the chart instead because not all galaxies have them. (That issue is also present in Mario 64, but there are also situations where multiple courses have identical looking paintings in that game like Jolly Roger Bay and Dire, Dire Docks, so it may not be the best idea in that case either.) I do think the little galaxy preview models would work very well on the main articles for each galaxy, for what it's worth.
I use to edit things on the fly too, but I stopped doing that a few years ago when I was an active curator on SmashWiki. This was during the lead up to Ultimate when there was a lot of activity on the site. Article revisions were constant, and some less experienced users kept trying to undo revisions for arbitrary or mean-spirited reasons. Working on big projects in isolation before integrating them into articles was safer. But doing so may not be necessary for Mario Wiki - this place fosters a much friendlier environment.
Colors were integrated in the level charts because I think it makes it a little easier to immediately tell what info is associated with which course. I created similar figures for biology research papers I wrote while I was in undergrad and my professors thought it was a good idea. If you think it makes things more confusing or distracting than helpful, I can try to think of a different solution. If you have any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them!
I was originally going to integrate "red" in the top banner for all the charts I made for Sunshine, 64, Galaxy, and Galaxy 2, but I saw that Super Mario 3D World has yellow banners and Super Mario Odyssey has white ones, so I thought it would be okay for each game to have different colored banners. - Nintendo101 (talk) 11:09, February 18, 2021 (EST)


Just wanted to congratulate you on all the awesome work you've done. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:07, March 4, 2021 (EST)

Aww, thanks! I appreciate that, especially coming from someone as involved with the wiki as you. If you ever want help with a project on the site, feel free to ask. Also, if you have any suggestions or feedback on any of the things I have done, you're more than welcomed to let me know. I always welcome constructive criticism. – Nintendo101 (talk) 16:45, March 4, 2021 (EST)
A thing I should tell you is I separate game-rendered and data-rendered models in galleries, so if you update one type to the other, its placement there may need changed. Personally, I'd just as soon rather have both images since the visual effects on them are different. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:52, March 5, 2021 (EST)
I'll be a more more cognizant going forward. I also generally prefer separating in-game renders and data-rendered models (the former are more like game sprites). While I have you, are you by any chance familiar with I am interested in downloading a couple of the game's textures for utilitarian and archival reasons (e.g. the Koopa Troop jolly roger flag; air bubble; quicksand warning sign; Bubble Breeze bubble texture; etc.), but it seems like there's no clear way to download the textures directly from the site. Do you know if I'm mistaken? – Nintendo101 (talk) 10:26, March 5, 2021 (EST)
There may be 3d model rippers out there such as Ninja Ripper that can recognize when an application is using models (I tried looking up what noclips uses for renders on its website and it doesn't clarify) and could potentially rip textures from there. If not, Dolphin Emulator can dump textures as you're playing the title but you require a rom for that. I'm not too knowledgeable about Super Mario Galaxy modding so I don't know how to extract textures directly without needing to use Dolphin's dump utility. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 13:45, March 5, 2021 (EST)

Ditto, the amount of effort you've been putting into your editing is amazing. Fantastic work! --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 11:23, March 5, 2021 (EST)


In my opinion, I just felt the connotation of the word "monster" is too heavy for use to describe it, like using "beast" to describe a giant spider. Even though the term is technically accurate and applies to the character, it's a hinge I don't like to straddle on. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 19:32, March 4, 2021 (EST)

That's totally fair. I get it. I'm personally a bit more open to something like "monster" because it is used to describe Bowser himself in the Galaxy games by NPCs, and it's something reserved to describe creatures that actively try to harm Mario, so it seems applicable. From my perspective, referring to something like Dino Piranha as a "monster" isn't too different from calling Gobblegut a "dragon".
I agree that something like "beast" or "ghastly" is too much. I'm not sure what I was thinking. I think I was trying to exercise terminology beyond just calling subjects "boss" or "enemy" because I didn't want subjects in the article to feel repetitive or formulaic to read about, and that's a trap I have fallen into in the past that I try to avoid. – Nintendo101 (talk) 19:54, March 4, 2021 (EST)
It's fine. I do think we should change up the writing at points, and I think we do need to use a good variety of words than the same repetitive writing. Contextualization is important too, if like the in-game NPCs or in-game descriptions refer to applicable beings as monsters and not in, say, a too colloquial tone, I guess we could use it. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 20:20, March 4, 2021 (EST)

SMG Bolts[edit]

Hey, good work on SMG! I've noticed that for your work on the game's object, the bolt link to the disambig. Despite this, the bolts in SMG are very distinct from the DK bolts, and honestly likely weren't meant to be the same. I assume they would be split in the future? Doomhiker (talk)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 16:37, March 8, 2021 (EST)

Hi, Doomhiker. Yes, I would not leave the Bolt link as it currently is in my sandbox for the final version in the main article. I think there should be a separate "Bolt (Super Mario Galaxy)" article. The same problem exists for the Water Valve, which links to a Mario vs. Donkey Kong item. It should probably have its own article too. However, my personal focus right now is just on the articles for the core Mario games, so I personally don't plan on writing up a "Bolt (Super Mario Galaxy)" article in the near future. That's something that can be addressed down the road. And thank you! I appreciate the compliment. I integrated similar revisions to the Super Mario Sunshine page. - Nintendo101 (talk) 12:53, March 9, 2021 (EST)

Show preview[edit]

If you'd like to see how your edit looks before saving, you should use "Show preview". This way, you don't flood the recent changes or the page's history with repeated edits. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:24, March 11, 2021 (EST)

Thanks, I will keep that in mind. Today in particular, personal matters pulled me away from projects before I could finish them, hence the frequent saves. - Nintendo101 (talk) 18:07, March 11, 2021 (EST)

Re: SMG2 Site Images[edit]

I don't know if this is a feature on the browser you're using, but in Firefox there is an option called "View Page Info" in the right-click menu. From there, the new window has a "Media" tab that shows a list of all images that the page is currently using. It's how I got images like this. RHG1951 (talk) 11:49, March 18, 2021 (EDT)

Thanks! I found an extension for my browser that allows me to extract all images. It worked perfectly! - Nintendo101 (talk) 13:10, March 18, 2021 (EDT)

.jpg and .png[edit]

Hello, regarding this, please do not convert a .jpg image into a .png image, as that is against our policy. You can still remove text, though, as well as remove backgrounds on .png images. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:33, March 18, 2021 (EDT)

Thanks, I won't do so in the future. Would it be preferential that I reupload this image under its original designation? - Nintendo101 (talk) 16:59, March 18, 2021 (EDT)
Oui. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:39, March 19, 2021 (EDT)
Merci! - Nintendo101 (talk) 11:50, March 19, 2021 (EDT)
"You can still remove text, though, as well as remove backgrounds on .png images."
Only on certain images, like sprites where cropping out stuff is easy. But if an artwork comes with a background, trying to remove it tends to be messy and is also against our policy, as it would be an illegitimate image. You can read more about our policy at MarioWiki:Image use policy. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:10, March 19, 2021 (EDT)
I do not believe cropping out "ユラリ" from the image conflicts with policy, as it is not an element of the image itself but a residual element from the book the photo was taken from. I do not believe I have removed backgrounds from isolated pieces of artwork either, because that does not meet curatorial standards. - Nintendo101 (talk) 12:20, March 19, 2021 (EDT)
A regular crop to focus on the subject is fine. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:22, March 19, 2021 (EDT)

SMG/SMG2 sprites[edit]

Hey, just so you know, if a sprite is used in both games, it should be in the image categories for both. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 21:13, March 20, 2021 (EDT)

Hmmm not sure I agree. I think an image should be categorized with its first usage because it reflects the project that bore it, but if it's policy I'll leave the categories alone. - Nintendo101 (talk) 21:18, March 20, 2021 (EDT)

SMG Terrace Graphic[edit]

Just came across your terrace graphic on the Galaxy page and had to let you know how cool and helpful I think it is. Very well done. --Seandwalsh (talk) 18:36, April 18, 2021 (EDT)

Galaxy names[edit]

Hey, so by the time I saw your message, I saw that you'd made the change from gravity arrow to Arrow Switch, so I figured you no longer see it as an issue. In case, let me explain what I meant there. Most of the names that you marked as "conjectural" were acceptable romanizations of Japanese names (though octopus is pending and I overlooked that Spring Topman is unsourced). {{conjectural|text}} is not meant for Japanese names and isn't even really used that often for subjects with articles already marked as {{conjecture}} (rather, it's more often used for minor subjects that don't have their own article). The only one that is "solely derived from internal data files" is the already-addressed Skeletal Fish Guard. It's a gray area, but more often than not, Nintendo does use final or at least descriptive names to label their files in their games. Sometimes, they'll even use localized names where you wouldn't expect, and localization will also reference internal names on occasion. Right now, internal filenames deemed understandable English are grouped under development names, meaning that they are generally considered a last resort for a proper name but will be considered as such. At some point, it was considered to give internal data its own template ala {{conjecture}} and {{another language}}, but that fell through. Again, if you have time, I'd encourage you to read through past discussions if you're confused about the application. LinkTheLefty (talk) 00:48, May 9, 2021 (EDT)

Super Mario Galaxy 2 rendering[edit]

Hi, the rendered Super Mario Galaxy models was ripped from Super1033. I uploaded them to the wiki, after he passed them to me on Discord. Ask to Super1033--Alternis (talk) 05:01, January 10, 2022 (EST)

SM64 renders[edit]

Hello, our gallery for SM64 separates game renders and data renders. As such, if you update one to be the other type, I ask you change its position in the gallery (or more preferably, just have both images). Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 05:23, January 10, 2022 (EST)

Thanks for the reminder. I planned on doing so. I just ran out of time. - Nintendo101 (talk) 20:58, January 10, 2022 (EST)

Super Mario 3D Land/World Model Request[edit]

It's ok if you don't accept, but can you by any chance add Super Mario 3D Land/World models, like your Super Mario Galaxy ones? Also, you're doing an awesome job, keep it up! - MarioSpriters2D 5/3/2022

Ring Around the Rocks[edit]

I feel the various "ring of object" things in the SMG games should share an article. Also, Bowser Jr.'s Fearsome Fleet has a unique variation that combines it with a valve. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:25, October 4, 2022 (EDT)

I agree! Though I am not sure what name to commit to for a main article. Do you a have a video link or image of this variant from Fearsome Fleet in action? - Nintendo101 (talk) 23:28, October 4, 2022 (EDT)
I do not, but it is on the foredeck of the ship with the Wigglers if memory serves me right. It's a valve with a ring of small holes around it, with Star Bits coming out from the holes when the valve is spun from the top. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:20, October 5, 2022 (EDT)

Artbook uploads[edit]

I see that throughout 2021, you uploaded a number of pieces from The Art of Super Mario Odyssey seemingly sourced directly from a digital copy of the book. I know you didn't mean wrong but I need to ask you to discontinue such practices and be more careful in the future. The ones that were officially uploaded on places like Twitter are fair deal but even if it's not literally all the content of the book, the wiki should not serve as a direct substitute for something that's still on store shelves. --Glowsquid (talk) 10:20, January 22, 2023 (EST)

Hi, Glowsquid. Thanks for reaching out. I will reframe from such uploads in the future. I only uploaded pieces I thought were interesting or noteworthy and thought it was fine considering other users have uploaded comparable pieces from scanned books in the past, but you are right - this is still a book in print. I would feel awful if this wiki and the other people who contribute to it fell under legal scrutiny from a publisher or IP-holder because I uploaded material uncritically.
I think it would be wise to pull the scans I have uploaded thus far. Do you agree? - Nintendo101 (talk) 14:05, February 1, 2023 (EST)

I've passed on your notice to the admins. I've stepped down from admin duties since April 17. --Glowsquid (talk) 11:49, May 7, 2023 (EDT)

Re: Big Boo 64[edit]

It applies to all .jpg across the board. Similarly, removing a white background in a .png artwork if fine if it's done skillfully. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:14, April 29, 2023 (EDT)

Thank you! - Nintendo101 (talk) 09:38, April 29, 2023 (EDT)

page number needed[edit]

I know that the game articles already use plenty of sources and it was a measure of convenience, but for future reference, when citing from print material, it's always preferable to include the page number. That's why {{page needed}} accompanies the {{ref needed}} template. Don't be too concerned with flooding the reference list since those subjects should get split into their own articles sooner or later. Also, when possible, specific names (usually capitalized or at least consistent) are preferred over generic descriptors (usually lowercase or one-off). Make sure you follow Naming as well; we don't normally cite in-game references unless the text is obscure or easily missed, but in-game references do have precedence over others. A few of those subjects already have articles. LinkTheLefty (talk) 16:48, May 20, 2023 (EDT)

Hi, Link. Thank you for reaching out. I'll make sure to cite specific pages going forward. You're right, I was wary of having too many entries in the reference list for one article. I appreciate knowing that is okay.
I will be careful with the naming of things. I have been working on the Super Mario Galaxy page (and related articles) for awhile, and the biggest challenge I have encountered is that very few of the objects that are treated as distinct in Shogakukan and Japanese source material were given discrete English names (i.e. Yosshī Furawā and Hachi Hana have both only been called "flowers" in English material, even though they are in the same game), resulting in some ambiguity. I'm sure this is something you already know about that impacts a lot of games, but I just wanted to clarify the issue with some of the reference material available from this era.
The trapeze vs. swing thing happened so long ago that I forgot it was ever mentioned to the player in-game, so that was just an oversight on my part. Sorry about that. - Nintendo101 (talk) 17:53, May 20, 2023 (EDT)

Super Mario Galaxy reception section[edit]

Hey, I wasn't there to look at the article for Super Mario Galaxy when you nominated it to be featured, but I do have a small request to expand the reception section. I don't think just reiterating reviewers giving it a score is adequate enough for it (why did Famitsu gave it a 38/40, elaborate on big outlet opinions, etc), and it's a stark contrast to an otherwise excellent very well done article. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 23:21, July 10, 2023 (EDT)

RE: English Mario Portal oddity[edit]

Yeah, it's still wonky. It alternates between the two languages every second time the link is opened. I've also seen that if the language is changed to Japanese and you open next page, it's stuck in Japanese as usual. As I said in edit summary, this seems to affect desktops/laptops only, mobile phones seem to work without problems. Just make sure the url contains /mario/en/ and the Portal should be in English.

I just checked this: if en is added manually, it may still open the page in Japanese. But at least the language selection at the bottom works correctly regardless. SmokedChili (talk) 11:49, November 27, 2023 (EST)

iQue Player controller[edit]

I saw this upload, and I wanted to say that there is actually an L button on the iQue controller. As seen in this image, it appears that Mario Kart 64 makes use of it too. Super Game Gear (talk) 16:19, December 2, 2023 (EST)

That's weird! In the SM64 manual, the same button is labeled a Z button. Maybe That was something they did specifically to communicate SM64's controls, because its placement on the console would make more sense as an "L" button. - Nintendo101 (talk) 16:31, December 2, 2023 (EST)
It is clear from this video by Nintendrew that the iQue Player has both an L and R button, with a Z button below the L button, so both are present. I have uploaded an L button option for the iQue to Template:Button for those interested. - Nintendo101 (talk) 19:26, December 4, 2023 (EST)

Thank you. I'm glad I could help out! - Nintendo101 (talk) 13:45, January 31, 2024 (EST)


It's apparently a name taken from New Super Mario Bros. U's Coin Collection video descriptions. You might want to ask LinkTheLefty if you want further info. Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 21:39, February 22, 2024 (EST)
